I can still remember those days when you gain admission into university you are being handled over with a long greenish file called Green File,

I can still remember those days when you gain admission into university you are being handled over with a long greenish file called Green File,

In this particular file you have to supply all information about you and agree to all the school rules and regulations. If you fail any of them then the Senate of the school will invite you for questioning.
So if wearing hijab is aginst the rules of the university how comes a lawyer that suppose to know and interpreters the law is breaking it?  
 
A Nigerian law graduate has been denied her call to the bar after insisting on wearing a hijab during the ceremony.

Amasa Firdaus, who graduated from Ilorin University, was denied entry to the hall in the capital, Abuja, where the ceremony took place.

She refused to remove her hijab, insisting instead on wearing the wig on top of her headscarf, local media say.

This was deemed as going against the dress code set by her law school, the university says.
Ms Firdaus described the actions of the Nigerian law school as "a violation of her rights", according to reports.

The case has attracted significant attention on social media.
A female Instagram user said Ms Firdaus was within her rights.

One Twitter user, Juliet 'Kego, said it was an example of sexism in Nigerian society.

Underneath it all, you'll find good ole patriarchy at the root of the issue, cos you know, what else would dare dictate what a woman wears? -Bikini or burkini, nun habit or hijab, maxis or muted nudes...?
BTW, women were NOT allowed to wear trousers in US congress till In 1969..

However, Tobechukwu Ekwunife said Ms Firdaus should respect the no-hijab rules of the law school.

Everyone must not be a lawyer. But if you decide to attend the Nigerian Law school you bound by its rules, if she insists on wearing the hijab she'll not be coerced to do otherwise but she cannot also expect to break the law that binds an organisation and claim right to religion.

The University of Ilorin is a federal university in the western Nigerian state of Kwara, 162 miles (261 km) from Lagos
